True Blood (you know you love it) wraps up season one this Sunday on HBO, and Bon Temps, La., definitely goes out with a bang.

Spoiler Alert: I can now dish exclusively that two different characters get their skulls smashed in—and not everyone in town will make it out of the finale in one piece.

At least one of the beloved characters listed below takes a beating. Can you guess which one? Here's the dish...

Who's in Danger?

Sookie Stackhouse (Anna Paquin): The serial killer hates fang bangers, and Sookie is certainly one of those, so Sunday night the killer finally comes looking for her. Unfortunate timing, then, that Sookie just revoked her superpowered ex-boyfriend Bill's invitation to stop by the house—because that's just where the bad guy comes looking for her. (Bonus Bill spoiler: Being a vampire is an especially unfortunate circumstance when it's still daylight outside but your Spidey sense tells you that someone is trying to kill your girlfriend.)

Sam Merlotte (Sam Trammell): Remember how Bill asked Sam to look after Sookie? Well, Sam continues to do just that, and he ends up smack dab in the middle of a fight to the death.

Tara Thornton (Rutina Wesley): You know those halfway-house people who took in Tara? They are not the least bit nice, and I think they might take in strays (Meredith Grey-style) so they can butcher them (Dexter Morgan-style). Among other things, there may be a pig involved, and Michelle Forbes' character is not normal. If this universe has vampires, shape-shifters and werewolves, it's got to have witches, too, and Michelle Forbes' character is, at the very least, a witch with a capital B.

Jason Stackhouse (Ryan Kwanten): Andy Bellefleur is ready to throw the book at Jason for the killings, and that makes Jason a sworn enemy—and target—of some in the town. Ironically, it makes him a hero to others...

Lafayette Reynolds (Nelsan Ellis): Lafayette's vampire canoodling might be catching up to him...

Murder-Mystery Bonus Dish:

The serial killer who took out Maudette Pickens and friends might or might not be the same person who murdered Gran.

So, who do you think is cruisin' for a bruisin' in Sunday's True Blood finale? One of the characters mentioned above...and/or someone else? Post your guesses in the comments!
